I'm surprised by how much I really, really like this! The packaging does actually call it a foundation, so that's interesting... in light of that, I actually tried it yesterday as a foundation and was uber-impressed! it covers my uneven skin and gives a nice flawless finish. If I want more coverage (for a night out or something), I think I might try it with a damp sponge as someone …Read more

Foundations - e.l.f. Cosmetics - All Over Cover Stick in Fair

Jan/19/2010

for a buck, it's worth it. i agree a lot with the previous poster, as well. it does work great covering small discolorations and redness around my nose. i use a *very* light hand, swirling my ring finger in the product to warm it, then applying it to the area. it has staying power, for sure especially when set with powder.

i sometimes use a concealer brush as well (in the above …

I have to say, and maybe I'm way off base here, but the product is called "Corrector" and I think that's exactly what it does for under eye circles. I've read a lot that says you should try to off-set blue/purple discolorations with the opposite color on the color wheel, which is orange! i think this product does exactly what it's supposed to, hence the color. I …Read more

Hallelujah! I've always had an oily scalp and since I don't often blow my hair out, it gets greasy quickly. I also don't like to shower everyday (I'm a busy, single, SAHM and it just doesn't always fit into my schedule!). Lo and behold when I find out there are many others out there that don't wash their hair every day. This has been a God-send for me! It was …Read more

Jan/05/2010

sigh. i just this moment realized that THIS product is the one that's been making me break out for a month or so. (thankfully, i don't use it often at all!) even so, i had the same experience as many others, breaking out in large, cystic (and almost immediate!) pimples in odd places that are usually somewhat dry for me (cheeks, middle of chin, etc). previously i had great skin and am …Read more

okay, i agree with what most of the others have said about what this product does, but for me it's not a bad thing. i'm a stay at home mom, so i don't get ready everyday, and i don't shower everyday. i like this because it's doesn't weigh my hair down, but does make it behave. my hair is soft and silky after use (just like it says on the bottle! -- no crunch!). …Read more

okay, i admit it, i just bought this today. since really delving into the world of makeup about 2 months ago, my skin has really suffered. i guess i didn't really how great my skin was because i never paid it any mind. did the same old skincare routine year in and year out (seriously!), only recently adding squalene oil and charcoal bar soap to my rotation. well, my skin hated all the …Read more

Jan/04/2010

This is just okay. i'm on the hunt for my HG concealer and this is not it, but it's not horrible. to be fair, i've only tried 4 or 5 and none of them are perfect (hence the hunt). I agree with the previous poster that it sinks into fine lines; i do find a quick smudge with my finger makes it behave again. i do feel that perhaps the color is a bit off/orange-y (I think i have …Read more

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss of Relief- SOS Lip Care

Nov/28/2009

It's true, it tastes horrible. I can't ever seem to get past that, so I can't comment too much about the actual properties of the balm itself. I've been using it on my daughter's lip, where she has a bit of a sore and it works well for that purpose. I prefer their Kiss of Moisture in the light blue tube; stocked up today at CVS for $.99/each!
